Reflecting God’s Heart at West Virginia Retreat

Reflecting God’s Heart at West Virginia retreat

by Susie Fox


Nearly two dozen women from Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky met together at Camp Joy in Berea, West Virginia on September 27-29, 2013 for the annual Appalachian Women’s Fall Retreat. This year’s program, planned by the Pataskala (Ohio) church, used the theme “Reflecting God’s Heart.” The 21 ladies had sessions on seeing God’s heart through Variety, Love, Worship, Forgiveness, Miracles, Laughter, and Persistence.

We were blessed throughout the weekend with yummy food, beautiful weather, good music, refreshing fellowship, and powerful prayer during this time away from our usual daily lives. We even had a special guest from Wisconsin (formerly from Ohio) who shared an informative dinner presentation on eating food the way God made it.

We were inspired by the way the Lord orchestrated the weekend and provided several “God moments” to reinforce what we were talking about. Everyone left the retreat looking forward to next year!
